Saloma Miller Furlong, Bonnet Strings: An Amish Woman’s Ties to Two Worlds, March 20-26

This week we explore what it means to be Amish from the perspective of a woman who left the Amish community as a young woman.  Saloma Miller Furlong is the author of Why I Left the Amish and Bonnet Strings:  An Amish Woman’s Ties to Two Worlds.   Through her personal experience of leaving the Amish we touch on the universal experience of being torn between the demands of personal authenticity and communal expectations.

Andrew Taylor-Troutman, Parables of Parenthood, March 13-20

What does changing diapers have to do with the Kingdom of God?  Plenty actually!  Andrew Taylor-Troutman, pastor of New Dublin Presbyterian Church in Dublin, Virginia, is the author of Parables of Parenthood:  Interpreting the Gospels with Family. Andrew returns to Religion For Life to discuss how the parables of Jesus are about real life that includes the wants and needs of a one year old.   When considered with head and heart both parables and parenting may surprise us into the Kingdom of God.

P.J. Fisk, If God Is My Father, Who Is My Mother? March 6 – 12, 2014

Is there a connection between patriarchal religion and gender inequality?  P.J. (Paula) Fisk speaks with me about her journey from a patriarchal religion and “the plight of the female in a predominant male system of religion.”   She is the author of If God Is My Father, Who Is My Mother?  A Spiritual Journey.    Her journey will inspire others to think for themselves and find their truth.
